Shirley Gutkowski knows a little about racing hydroplanes. Her husband, Mark, raced A class hydroplanes from the time he was 15 until the couple had a few children. 

The racers start in motion, jockeying for position at the start line, then race in a circle on the water until someone crosses the finish line first. Before that, the racer needs to understand the boat, the motor, and not be afraid to wear weights in their life jacket.
Preparation for race is a lot of fun and what we'll be talking about on this edition of Cross Link Radio.
